Gold under pressure as US yields rebound

Gold prices declined in European trade for another session off four-week highs on active profit-taking, while hurt by surging US treasury yields, drawing investments away from gold.

Gold prices fell 0.3% to $1,754 an ounce, after losing 0.6% yesterday, the first loss in five days off four-week highs at $1,788.

 

US Yields

 

US 10-year treasury yields rose 0.5% today for the second session off four-month lows at 2.516% following bullish remarks by Fed officials.
